Description of problem:
Dell Inspiron 7000, (Mobile PII 366, 320 RAM)
If a Lucent Orinoco wireless nic (orinoco Silver) is inserted during bootup of fedora core2 test 1 the installer promptly crashes and ends with a message stating it's safe to reboot the system..
It is always reproducible, if the NIC is not inserted during power up the installer does NOT crash.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert pcmcia nic (orinoco silver)
2. boot fedora core2 CD
3. anaconda dies with "it's safe to reboot your system" message
Actual Results: anaconda dies with "it's safe to reboot your system" message
Expected Results: it should have prompted for an ESSID so that it could enable the wireless lan connectivity
Please retry with test2.
or test3 (test3 works in my case test2 doesnt)
